The study was carried out to assess the impact of anthropogenic disturbances of mild intensity on diversity and phytosociological attributes of tree species in two subtropical forest stands, represented by Ialong and Raliang sacred groves in Jaintia hills of Meghalaya, northeast India. A total of 159 woody species (≥ 5 cm dbh) of 107 genera was identified in the two groves spreading over an area of 2 ha. The richness of woody species in 0.5 ha study plots increased from 80-82 in the protected… Expand
